Carvin has intrduced the new B1500 "mono block" bass head, delivering 700w at 8 Ohms, 1250w at 4 Ohms and 1900w at 2 Ohms. If 1900 watts is more than you need, then Carvin offers the B500 with the same tone, but delivering 225w at 8 Ohms, 350w at 4 Ohms and 500w at 2 Ohms.

Tone shaping is achieved from 4 discrete class A gain stages yielding harmonically rich bass tones.
